Happy Halloween (Penny Black stamp)

Hi, everyone.  Today I am sharing a Halloween card featuring a kitty from Penny Black's "Spooky" clear stamp set.  I stamped it on watercolour paper and used my Tombow watercolour markers - a bit of a change for me as I usually colour with pencils.  I fussy-cut the kitty and popped up with foam tape, adding a star sequin to his hat.

I stamped the sentiment vertically alongside the kitty.  I added a couple banners and another sentiment using tiny alphabet labels and stamped an exclamation mark.

Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Image, sentiment (Penny Black "Spooky" clear stamps), exclamation mark (Studio G clear stamps)
  • Patterned paper:  Creative Memories, Forever in Time
  • Ink:  StazOn Jet lack
  • Watercolour paper:  Canson
  • Accents:  Alphabet labels, star sequin (my stash)

I also wanted to play along in Colette's Cosmic Colours Challenge, so I used three of the colours in the swatch shown below.

Happy Halloween - Design Seeds
